Got crushed by RELA yesterday down 17%.


okantos

out of all my growth stocks GRN seems like the most certain to succeed based on it's financials and business model and it's dropping like a rock


Sufficient-Ad3118

I keep buying this dip and I dont plan to stop


okantos

I got my average down to 1.8 and I’m pretty happy with that


FunkyChickenTendy

Loaded up more today, what a sale!


okantos

I’m out of funds after loading up yesterday lol


Willbcrypto

just put all my tfsa in ETHX.U today let's go!


giggy13

wish I bought more @ 9,95$. Didn't know what to expect, a lot of people overpaid BTCC the first day it got listed.


Willbcrypto

i dont mind, my target is high (ETH 20k USD). my avg. is 10.20


tooo_spicy

My DCA strategy has made me full yolo. AC CHR PIF. The rest can go fuck themselves.

Is there a reason TD dipped ?


Instantlygotagram

Sometimes prices go down.


giggy13

no shit


Spirited-Wrangler265

Then why ask. There an incomprehensible amount of factors that contribute towards the stock price, unless there is serious news don't bother thinking too much about it

wtf is with MMED?


No_Meaning5544

Pump and dump?


LoveLeahNotWar

Not sure...


giggy13

52wk low is 2,05$ ! We're not far. NUMI is down a lot also, PSYK ETF too. Speculative stocks are takin a beating these past few months


LoveLeahNotWar

Yeah I’m glad I just have a few


richhyy_

Picked up some more GDNP. At some point I gotta stop 😅


MoltenBrownie

What makes GDNP a good buy? I'm new


fakename233

Im in GDNP as well and for me its the fact the biodegradable food packaging industry is a future boom out of necessity, they benefit from any plastics ban as well. Overall just like what they do,

>PHA I think I might be done with you. I'm not watching this head back down to 7 CAD again. True that from being down 1-2% to taking off over 8% lol, thats crazy


Blitzdog416

Thoughts on Canadian energy companies? I've noticed recently that several have moved from Strong Buy/Buy recos to Hold recos... AQN, RNW, FTS, TRP, NPI, ENB, BEP Tax return is coming so I need some focus, LOL Note: I currently hold AQN, RNW and TRP


nc77

Honestly with these 3 I don’t see the need to add another utility... you got yield, renewable, pipeline. If you reaallly want another one maybe FTS or EMA. But otherwise I would just add to your existing positions on pullbacks

Not OP but all my stocks but 2 dropped today... bad day for the market


regeneration_chau

I fucked up so badly buying 2k worth of mn.v at .65c


Terribledawg

Give it time, they are still in the early stage, it's a long term play and penny stock are always a bit highly volatile. They will be the sole supplier of manganese in Canada, protectionism will still be rampant to some degree with Biden in the WH and Quebec is looking forward to put it's electricity knowledge to good use (with LEV amongst other things) So many things could go right, but there's risk as well. Not financial advice of course.


vmaze81

I have $2k in my tfsa uninvested, should I just throw it all in XEQT/TEC for now? or buy some dips.... trying to salvage the damage being done to my other investments :)


Fab-e

Having cash on hand is always nice too. Wait till something you like really dips. Bet we'll see choppy markets for a while.


Good-Vibes-Only

If you are worried about volatility, I'd go with XEQT


Rockefeller07

Bought JD/BABA


Shaun8030

Feel bad for you.


Rockefeller07

Be greedy when others are fearful doesnt apply here? If Charlie Munger has a large chunk in Baba that he bought recently, Id say its worth a shot for undervalued Chinese stocks.


Shaun8030

Yeah but if a baba exec looks at a high ranking CCP member the wrong way, they will break up the company into pieces or threaten to do so. They made an example of Jack Ma, don't you dare m as with us. Not to mention US Congress threatening to delist Chinese stocks every couple months. Too much political influence not worth the drama . I sold my shares a few months ago for 200 hundred or 300 hundred dollar loss .


Rockefeller07

I get what you mean, but these china/US political tensions ALWAYS happen over the years and the stocks always dip and go back up and dont get me wrong ovbiously its not going to end in the same result everytime, but Im willing to take my chances. Also im less worried about the CCP, Xi Jinping is not going to destroy some of Chinas biggest companies and Baba already got the 2.8B dollar fine which is nothing hence it shot up to $240 after the news. The same sentiment goes with US stocks, when Facebook recieves a lawsuit/antitrust case and dips, its the best time to buy or when Visa gets investiated for monopolistic purposes and dips you buy and they tend to go right back up.


JimmyRussellsApe

JimmyRussellsApe

The stock market lol Seriously, nothing crazy. Mostly ETF's and recovery plays like AC, CGX, SU, CUK


rice_n_salt

Brokerage question. I'm using Questrade currently, and I like them. However, I'm starting to trade larger options volumes now, and if I want to buy 100 contracts, it's $109.95 in commissions. Ouch. I know in the US there are numerous very low cost/zero cost brokers. I have heard that InteractiveBrokers in Canada is good for options trading, but their commissions still work out to 0.65 per contract, so $65 in my example. Better, but still hurts. Are all alternatives in Canada in and around this range? Do you have specific recommendations or could you let me know what broker you use for options and if you like them?


happyd87

I'm the same. You can try the active trader package that reduces it to $5 + 0.75/contract and gives free level 2's and other data packages. You get a full rebate if you trade enough. I hear bad things on the IBKR interface. Some day I will try their demo to see which I like better. I've been using QT for 11 years so its hard for me to switch.


rice_n_salt

Oooooh good idea. Not sure why I never thought about taking advantage the Active Trader packages! I’m assuming you use the US package?


happyd87

I did, however, I slowed down trading options to selling covered calls or naked puts so I downgraded to the basic package.


rice_n_salt

Good idea, nonetheless. I’m going to look into this.


Mysterious_Hall_4089

I'm in the exact same boat. Everything I've seen suggests IBKR is the way to go for options trading. I'm looking into transferring now.


jacky4566

I was looking on the website but didnt see Canada TSX listed for options trading? [https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/index.php?f=1590&p=options7](https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/index.php?f=1590&p=options7) What are the fees for trading options?


rice_n_salt

I am newish to options trading, but I found that it’s not so easy finding opportunities in Canadian options. Could you tell me your strategies? For Canadian options pricing, I think you have to look under the Tiered plan section. Try this link: https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/index.php?f=1590&p=options6


Mysterious_Hall_4089

I don't trade canadian options. There isn't enough volume. Volume is EVERYTHING for my style. I only take high probability neutral position (maybe slightly directional) trades. Usually in the 30-45 DTE range. I don't hit home runs, but I hit singles all day long. There's a lot more to it, but I'd be happy to chat, if you like.


rice_n_salt

I’d love to hear more, either here or DM! I am trying a few strategies and haven’t settled on something I like yet.


rice_n_salt

Oh nice. I'd love to hear about your experience. I just found an article with some details about Tastyworks trying to expand into Canada with corresponding low commissions. Targeting sometime mid-2021. That might be worth waiting for too?


JimmyRussellsApe

ETHH vs ETHX...? The latter has much lower fee but that's not the whole MER of course. ETHX has higher volume thus far today, but BTCC has about 10x the volume of BTCX...


Noob_Investor_1

Anyone buying CNR today?


nc77

Yup! Deal goes through: more revenue, better earnings Deal doesn’t go through: CNR still has a duopoly in railroads Win-win

Jungian108

Thoughts on TBL? looks really cheap rn


[deleted]

I own a small amount. Their net income is way up in 2020 and they paid a nice special dividend in March. Even based on their 2018 or 2019 much lower net income, they still would have a respectable PE of around 13. It seemed even undervalued then


Jungian108

Definitely, any ideas why the valuation seems to be lower than other lumber companies? And if you have one, what is your price target? I might buy a small amount at the end of the week.


[deleted]

I'm not sure why it is lower. This one along with wef and CFP have been killing it for me for several months. As of December they paid off most of their revolving credit (still some long term) and I see no reason why the next earnings and beyond won't crush it. I don't have a price target specifically. Industry is very forward looking and when people start to smell a dip in commodity prices, it's time to watch carefully and trim. I chose to trim 30% from cfp and wef instead of this one. Last Friday I think. Mostly just because the % of my portfolio in these was getting high


Standard_Anything135

Guys its ok to hate trump and downvote me if you want but do you really think if trump was president he would stay silent for two month with a stock market that has not gained anything for the last two month?


magisteerial

I miss Trump because he was extremely incompetent and mentally unstable, which caused a lot of dips in the market. Tweet about China trade issues? Market down 5%, recovers the next day, easy money. With Biden it's just consistent gains with an occasional correction, so boring.


Standard_Anything135

If trump is mentally unstable i wonder what you would call biden


magisteerial

I call him by his title, the President of the United States of America, like I do with any other leader who wins their election by a landslide.

How is your portfolio doing these past 2 month? Slow ass growth or losses guaranteed


cloakster7

The S&P500 broke to a new ATH on April 1 and proceeded to go up for 11+ days straight. The Nasdaq 100 had a similar 2 week green streak breaking to new ATHs. What are you talking about?


Standard_Anything135

Nasdaq was 14025 on february 12 qnd is now 13700 nasdaq is a better indicator than the s and p 500 buddy also these past few month we have seen the slowest growth


cloakster7

Nasdaq 100 is mainly just tech companies. The US economy is not only made up of Tech companies, which is why the S&P500 is a better indicator as it includes other sectors like banks, healthcare, etc.


Standard_Anything135

Talking about nasdaq composite which includes most stocks

GoEasy aka EasyHome (Symbol: [GSY.TO](https://GSY.TO) down 7%). Canadian government to examine companies involved in predatory lending. EasyHome is one of them. Don't go look at their rates it will make you angry.

Interesting. Is there a source for this? Edit: found it. it was part of the budget. https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/15-things-you-may-have-missed-in-the-federal-budget-1.1592378


phoqueface

They were on my radar until someone mentioned the absurdly high interest rates they charged. I wanna make money but still have somewhat of a conscience


le_bib

While I understand the conscience part, what should be done for these higher risk loans? Force the banks to loan at same rate to everyone ? Refuse to loan money to people at higher risks, even if they need it ? Someone might need $1,500 to repair a car to go to work. GSY has about 10-13% of loan not being reimbursed, they can’t loan at 3% interests.


rockinoutwith2

> They were on my radar until someone mentioned the absurdly high interest rates they charged. I wanna make money but still have somewhat of a conscience So do Visa, Mastercard and by extension all the banks. Make sure you dump all those too.


phoqueface

I do have td, but goeasy has rates as high as 40%. That’s extreme


rockinoutwith2

Oh I see, so 24.99% credit cards are fine when prime rates are basically nada, but 40% is "extreme". Gotcha.


trenderizer

Yeah I agree, and there has been hundreds of nice uptrends out there, so I left it out of my watchlist. I recall that the governement has looked into these super high interest rate practices in the past, maybe even twice. They might actually do something this time.

trenderizer

The short term price is down, but zooming out, the trend is still up (for now) so I like [AC.TO](https://AC.TO) as a recovery play. If the market pulls backs (seems we're do for one, no big deal and expected) then let's see how [AC.TO](https://AC.TO) reacts relative to the TSX. If it doesn't underperform then I would buy. But if you are not into technical analysis, then buying around here is likely a good bet if you can sit patiently for 6 months.


helloworld_x

There's not a single green stock in sight


MO2004

AQN, HR.UN, and REI.UN are green for me today! But only like +0.5% each so nothing compared to AC, SU, and CNR being down -4-7% 😓


StickyRickyLickyLots

SOLR is up 20%, so that's nice.


ResignedFate

My ACO, AQN, BCE, CPX, CU, RNW, and SJR are all pretty green. For now.

I think I'm finally learning my lesson about "the next big thing" stocks. Boomer stocks and boring ETFs here I come.

You and me both. I can't keep buying "dips". I'm uninstalling WS, waiting a month and then whatever is even or green I'm selling and dumping into VEQT.


sheriff_sativa

This is exactly what I did, I simplified my portfolio down to 4 holdings. XEQT (60%), TEC (15%), BAM.A (15%), BTCC.B (10%) BTCC.B just to keep things a little bit "spicy"! Certainly not a safe portfolio, however, I'm noticing I don't have such drastic drops when the market is having a red day as I did when I had individual stocks and more volatile ETFs Portfolio is down 0.64% today, I'll take it all things considered! Edit: Spelling mistake and added portfolio change for the day

Basically like mine, but got GDNP, HPQ and PLUR instead

Numi up 200% from September. Good news story!! lol There are so many stocks that got overvalued horrendously Nov-Jan. Some companies with good potential too. grn, gdnp, etc. The small cap pump and dump quarter.


[deleted]

Worst thing anyone can do as a current new investor is to look at a 1 or 3 months chart and think they're getting a deal. Look at the 1 year chart. Or at least 6 months.. Then factor in positive growth/change from that point in time.


rdawg1234

I would say just look at the market cap and check how much revenue the company made/is making. If the valuation looks insane it's definitely not good to invest lmao. Made a couple bad investments my first month(XBC for example).


catscanmeow

yep, another good one i heard was the 200day moving average, seems to be a popular metric.

malikrys

Finally someone who agrees. Besides, I've got some $80 bags too and I'm keeping em all the way down. Feel like the 50-60s are warranted for a little while to make sure the company catches up a bit and we have some better numbers but in no way is this a bad stock to me.


fishingiswater

Yeah I'm still worried that a bunch of restaurants and small stores are going to close. I'm definitely looking at this one, but not until I'm pretty certain people are ready to spend again.


[deleted]

It has done that a few times. Been rolling hills with a slight downward trend in 2021. If you buy now, it may go back up to $90 again fairly quickly. But the downside risk is that if market sentiment sours more on high valuation tech or there's a bit of a crash, lspd could take a pretty fast dive IMO


Iliketomeow85

More people should ask “why should this go up?”

CNR


helloworld_x

main reason being?


Legitimate_Source_43

Just sold out of suncor took profit and moved it to cnr. This news of over bidding for Kansas railway seems to be taken badly due to over paying compared to CP in $200 per share /1 share of cnr for kansas rail road owners. Personally think the growth and moat cnr would possess after this would be insane. Connecting all ports of canada, usa, mexico. Do your own research and see dividend growth average around 14 percent per year past ten years plus share appreciation.


rdawg1234

Yeah in the long run CNR will do well from this, could take a while but they would have a very large share of the market from this. Steep deal though.


SpreadTheGlutes

I can't see the deal going through. CN already has a huge network running south from Chicago to New Orleans. I think the STB would favour the CP deal due to competition issues if CN had all that trackage. Just my thoughts. I own both CP and CN.


helloworld_x

didn't they overbid a few hours back surpassing that of CP? are you certain the deal goes through?


rdawg1234

Yeah they overbid CP. Not certain, the US may jump in and nix the deal but we'll see. Whether the deal goes through or not CNR is a very solid investment IMO. Very little competition in the rail space.

DustyBowls

hi


Jungian108

what up


DustyBowls

You in any REITs?


Jungian108

Nope, but they are pretty cheap right now and have good dividends. I wouldnt touch an office REIT though.. I think this work from home atmosphere is here to stay. wbu?


DustyBowls

So there's this parent company that owns industrial, office, and an asset management currently trading way below NAV. I'm guessing the sentiment towards office is dragging down their share price but their office properties are located in prime downtown Toronto sectors. I'd say second best compared to Allied Properties. They way the stock is valued at the moment you'd essentially be buying their asset management for free accounting for the base cost of their property locations in Toronto, Vancouver, Alberta, Ottawa and Florida. The risk to the downside is quite defined and low and the upside is 2x given a sentiment shift imo. I think great office locations are different from lower tier locations. WFH is going to eat into the sector but it won't kill it, especially the bigger players. I'm thinking a consolidation is more likely which will benefit some and negatively impact others.


Jungian108

Its definitely true that reits have low downside. I’ll definitely buy some reits in the future when im focused on more of a DRIP style of investing, but right now thats not my style What is the ticker of the REIT you are talking about?
